(CNN) -- Several people, including police officers, were wounded in a shooting Monday at a police station in Fairfax County, Virginia, according to a police spokeswoman.
Several people were airlifted to the hospital after the shooting at Sully District Station, in the western part of the county, Fairfax police spokeswoman Mary Ann Jennings said.
The U.S. Park Police said one of its helicopters was involved in a search after the incident.
My daughter saw the cop cars go bye, evidently the suspects (some of them) got away. No details on the local tv news site. Here is the link:
"He said "I'll be back" then this car came crashing thriugh the frint if the station. Then all hell broke loose."
Sorry, it was just a movie.
Prayers for the wounded.
Come with me if you want to live!!
HE'S A TERMINATOR! THAT'S WHAT HE DOES! THAT'S ALL THAT HE DOES!
When did it happen? Are there multiple suspects? WTF ... it sounds like Iraq.
Looks like multiple suspects, according to post #3 above.

Maybe an act of terrorism by that South American gang, everyone is concerned about?
Initial reports indicated that someone armed with a rifle started shooting at the police station. Police are on the lookout for a white Ford F-250 pick-up truck that may be related to the shootings. The truck has Virginia plates JPK8892.
All Fairfax County police stations have been placed on lockdown.
This was no joke. And why did they put all Fairfax County police stations on lockdown?
"Are there multiple suspects?"
Two or maybe three, one suspect wounded (I think) One (or two) fled.
Here is the info from my kid watching it on TV down there:
White Ford Explorer, VA License plate JPK 8892
This is so messed up, the cops didn't bring these people into the station with rifles, they must have stormed the station or something.
No info on the personal description of the perps, presumably they are male (sorry fellows, but you know that's true), my question is is this another ROP attack.
Police Involved Shooting in Faifax County
May 8th - 4:32pm
FAIRFAX -- Shots have been fired at a police station in the Chantilly area.
Fairfax County police spokeswoman Mary Ann Jennings says several people have been hurt. She says authorities don't know how many or whether any officers were injured.
"We had a shooting situation, we're trying to figure out what happened, why it happened," Jennings said.
Police say the shooting happened at the Sully District Station, located on the 4900 block of Stonecroft Boulevard. There were reports of a carjacking in the area near Paddington Lane, but it's not clear if the two incidents are related.
Police are reportedly still seeking a suspect.
As soon as they determine that the shooters are black or hispanic, and the cops are white.
Sorry, i think you are right it was a pickup truck.
The other stations are on lock down as "a precaution" not due to "any specific threat".
